Meet the Author

Don Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra ( September 29, 1547 – April
23, 1616) was a Spanish novelist, poet, and playwright. Cervantes
was one of the most important and influential persons in literature
and the leading figure associated with the cultural fluorescence of
sixteenth century Spain (the Siglo de Oro). His novel, Don Quixote,
is considered as a founding classic of Western literature and
regularly figures among the best novels ever written; it has been
translated into more than sixty-five languages, while editions
continue regularly to be printed, and critical discussion of the
work has unabatedly persisted since the 18th century. He has been
dubbed el Príncipe de los Ingenios (the Prince of Wits). Cervantes,
born in Alcalá de Henares, was the fourth of seven children in a
family whose origins may have been of the minor gentry. The family
moved from town to town, and little is known of Cervantes's early
years. Cervantes made his literary début in 1568. By 1570 he had
enlisted as a soldier in a Spanish infantry regiment and continued
his military life until 1575, when he was captured by barbary
pirates on his return home. He was ransomed by his parents and the
Trinitarians and returned to his family in Madrid. In 1585,
Cervantes published a pastoral novel, La Galatea. Because of
financial problems, Cervantes worked as a purveyor for the Spanish
Armada, and later as a tax collector. In 1597 discrepancies in his
accounts of three years previous landed him in the Crown Jail of
Seville. In 1605 he was in Valladolid, just when the immediate
success of the first part of his Don Quixote, published in Madrid,
signaled his return to the literary world. In 1607, he settled in
Madrid, where he lived and worked until his death. During the last
nine years of his life, Cervantes solidified his reputation as a
writer; he published the Exemplary Novels (Novelas ejemplares) in
1613, the Journey to Parnassus (Viaje del Parnaso) in 1614, and in
1615, the Ocho comedias y ocho entremeses and the second part of
Don Quixote. Carlos Fuentes noted that, "Cervantes leaves open the
pages of a book where the reader knows himself to be written. "
